Wonderful company to start you career straight out of college.

ProsCisco has a bunch of perks; Flexibility, Growth, Exposure, Work/Life Balance, Great Atmosphere, Work Family. Overall Cisco cares about their employees and what makes them happy.

ConsCisco only has a couple of negatives in my opinion. Performance reviews are slightly unfair but don't really harm you(meaning you are more likely to get average but that means good). Visiting HQ depends upon the team you work for and some teams never send people some limits visibility face to face (WebEx makes up for that a little but still would like to shake a hand from time to time.)

Advice to Senior ManagementSend your employees once every 2 years to shake hands in primary work locations. Find a better way to stank rank employees based on peers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
